Missy Harvey: So pleased to have story of Roach ancesters
Also thankful to know more about Toria Yates, for whom Toria named, in Billy Joe Fudge Kentucky Color history chapter
By Missy Harvey
I am so thankful for this article. My great grandmother was a Roach. She told me so many stories about her family.
However, years after her death I always wondered who Toria was. I was speaking to a woman a few years ago who told me that Toria was an old time spelling for the name Tori.
I always thought we were pronouncing it incorrectly by saying "Tori" instead of Toria.
I began to tell her that Toria was the name of a community my great grandmother grew up.
I often tell people this when they correct me on my country dialect. I am so pleased to now have a person's story along with their name. Thanks so much for sharing! --Missy Harvey
